Archer tank no longer spots when zoomed with zoom spotting activated.

Mistake?

How Dice, why?

    Maybe it’s inspottable?

    Why do you need a crutch?

    If it's a specialization it should work though,regardless if you call it a crutch.

    let me guess
    by fixing the stationary Q spotting they also removed the spotting scope spotting of the tanks....
    or the new broken vehicle hitboxes also affect spotting

    Same with plane hovering sound, they removed it so well that engine sound disappears when you fly it.

    Panzer 38 spotting scope still worked after the patch, so maybe it is just Archer?

    Looks like it. Should be easy fix if they choose to fix it.......

    None of the spotting scopes work. 38t stag planes, the new patch screwed it up. I left a message, but no body wants to respond

    This is correct. I think someone at Dice might have even confirmed that on reddit or Twitter.

    What isn't bigger in this game. I understand no piece of software is going to be 100% glitchless, but this is ridiculous

    Said it before: this game keeps giving me the feeling playing an early access, and we're +/-7months.
    The joy in playing was ok in March when everything started to feel nice in the game. The current quality control seems inexistant.

    Plane's spotting camera, Tank's spotting scope and Recon's spotting gadget no longer work ever since the last patch.

    Its something about Sweden and not being able to write software. Seriously another game I play is made by swedes and extremely buggy.

    @RamFrog

    I played first time after patch.

    On Panzer 38T I noticed the same bug and slower TTK ( for mg) and I think splash damage was also smaller.

    Something was weird, nerf or what. Idk. But for 100 % mg was slower than week earlier.

    Archer turns too fast. I go on his back and even after this I have some trouble to kill him.

    On gfycat you can see this bug. Dice why?? Big disadvantage for this small tank with weak armour.

    Working for me on my Xbox too. Strange.

    **EDIT: From the quick bit of profile clicking I just did it seems that people who are reporting that the Archer scope isn't spotting any more are on PC. Could this be a PC specific problem or has anyone on PS4/XB1 noticed this as well?

    What's worse is the hit registration its god awful along with the stutter when you get a kill. Tanking isn't enjoyable with all the bugs and super soldiers running around taking rounds like a raid boss.
